She’s practically perfect in every way, but royal bride Kate Middleton had a bit of trouble with her spelling in a letter she wrote to the All England Club after an enjoyable trip to Wimbledon.

The 29-year-old Duchess of Cambridge decided to send a handwritten letter of thanks to the club three years ago in July 2008, displaying her exquisite manners.

But unfortunately for Kate she managed to misspell two words in her personal note, writing “quite” instead of “quiet” and confusing “’till” with “til”.

Now the letter has been displayed in Wimbledon’s museum for all to see, poor Kate will never be able to live down her mistakes – although she appears to have given consent for the letter to be put on show, the Daily Mail reported.

In her endearing letter, now displayed in a glass cabinet in the museum, Prince William’s wife wrote: “Dear Sir. Thank you for your kind hospitality at Wimbledon last week.

”My friend and I had such a fantastic time and it was great to be able to enjoy the day knowing that we could have a little peace and quite if things got a little too hectic.

"It was a wonderfully relaxed day and we even spent part of it on the ‘Henman/Murray Hill’, which was great fun. I really was not expecting to be looked after with such hospitality and I certainly wasn’t expecting to see any of the Centre Court games.

"I do hope the end of the tournament runs smoothly and this fantastic weather lasts ’till the end of the week. Thank you again for making it such a fun and easy visit.” She then signed off with: “Best wishes, Catherine Middleton."

Meanwhile Kate's sister Pippa is rumoured to be  getting close to William's brother Prince Harry. The pair are said to have met up "at least five times" since the royal wedding.
